    1. There are children dying now. Stop pretending like you care. Stop being dumb enough to think that MSNBC cares. SAVE LIVES.

    1. They have happened in many places pretty much across this whole country, no one should ever forget that European Americans did not use “diplomacy” with indigenous people to take this land.

  1. And now I know why the republicans don’t want this part of history to be told in school

    1. @7thpilot LOL southern conservative bigots are in the Republican party. The “heritage” is being protected by the party of Lincoln.

    2. @1861 In Their Own Words Opinion isnt fact so your opinion is mute, gave you facts and you still deny them you should be able to get a job at CNN I hear their looking for more Cult followers

    3. @Brian Jones sure Repubs ended slavery, however, the dems were the ones after the Civil War that were fiscally conservative and Republicans were for tax and spend. When the po arties swithched Repubs were fiscally conservative and dems now want to tax and spend. It’s NOT that Republicans don’t want to help anyone out, part of their philosophy is if you work hard you can have this or that. Dems would rather have ppl dependent on the gov’t. You ain’t gonna make money collectibg a welfare check.
      One more point, they are discussing the statues, these same statues that the dems put up in order to terrorise ppl, I thought they wanted to erase the past. And her comment about critical race theory…what is that gonna do but create more animosity

    1. @Uncomfortable Truth but me as a black individual discussing racism in the US is not the reason it still exists.

    2. @Rachel Tucker
      No but it is used by both sides to further their strangle hold and create division between one country that shares the same goals of
      Prosperity.
      The media uses fear to pigeon hole whites into supporting racial oppression and anti democratic freedoms.
      I have seen this happen to my own family, who I now can no longer talk to.
      It’s a cruel and manipulative tactic and it has worked oh so well.
      and it will be pushed to the extreme.
      I fear that the future will devolve into an ideological conflict.
      And every year I see this nightmare fulfilled.

    3. @Make Racists Afraid Again – “We must believe in a future where color of skin is no more significant than color of hair” – Sam Harris

      Nothing is sadder than a person that views others, and themselves, through the distorted lens of race.

      Many Americans want to blame other races for their poverty or hardship in life. And both parties pander to this horrible idea, for votes and support.

      What is dividing us is a class struggle, which has been with us since the dawn of human civilization.

      Many Americans are buying into the notion that “systemic racism” currently exists, when the more insidious implicit (unconscious) bias is the likely cause. This gives rise to other bad ideas, such as Critical Race Theory.

    4. There is a huge difference between fighting for equality and demanding privilege. In 2020 457 White persons and
      241 Black persons were shot and killed by police. In 2021 to date there have been 114 White persons and 62 Black persons shot and killed by police. There was not a single riot over any of the White persons deaths in either year. Perhaps the wrong race is crying discrimination.

  2. “..10 And he said unto me, Seal not the words of the prophecy of this book; for the time is at hand.

    11 Let the unrighteous still do unrighteousness; let the unclean still be defiled; let the righteous still do righteousness, and let the holy one still be sanctified.

    12 Behold, I am coming soon, and my reward is with me, that I may reward every man according to his works.

    13 I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end, the First and the Last.

    14 Blessed are those who keep his commandments, that they may have a right to the tree of life, and enter the city by the gate.

    15 But outside are dogs, and sorcerers, and fornicators, and murderers, and idolaters, and everyone who loves and does unrighteousness.

    16 I, Jesus, have sent my angel to bear witness to you in the churches. I am the root and descendant of David, the bright and morning star.

    17 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come! And let him who hears say: Come! Let him who is thirsty come, and let him who is desirous take the water of life freely.

    18 And I also bear witness to everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book: If anyone adds anything to them, God will put on him the plagues that are written in this book;

    19 And if anyone takes away anything from the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away from him his part in the book of life, and in the holy city, and in what is written in this book.

    20 He who bears witness to these things says, ” I am coming soon.” Amen to that. Hey, come on, Lord Jesus!

    21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ is with you all. Amen to that.”

    Revelation of John the Evangelist, 22:10-21

    1. @OrcaBob 27 yes, a bias against inequality. A bias against racial discrimination. A bias against perpetuating social and economic harm on people based on race, which by the way, negatively effects all.

  3. Genesis 15
    12 And when the sun was going down, a deep sleep fell upon Abram; and, lo, an horror of great darkness fell upon him.

    *13 And he said unto Abram, Know of a surety that thy seed (Deut.**28:15**-69) shall be a stranger in a land that is not theirs (Deut.**28:36**), and shall serve them (Deut.**28:48**-50); and they shall afflict them 400 years.* Jeremiah 30 ~ Jacob’s trouble

    *14 And also that nation, whom they shall serve, will I judge: and afterward shall they come out with great substance.* (Recompense & Reparations) ~ 2nd Exodus

  4. I’m struggling to see the point of this and what it “proves.” I already knew slavery was abolished in 1868, and I also already know humans are prone to violence.
    Edit: Now I come to think of it, this actually reminds me of Rev. Al Sharpton saying that the racism that one person felt (Tim Scott) proves the U.S. is racist. Genius.

  5. pretty clear that this time of racial unrest can finally be said to be different though. in fact clearly coming into view is that this is all about some type of sickness involving america attempting to use skin color to leverage out of difficult times. in other words the riot in tulsa, the statues, the response to obama it’s all of a piece…with the worry that those most damaged by this malady are the only one’s capable of curing it…but that’s to ask for heroism on behalf of what’s soon again going to do you harm? sorry yall but on this one white america’s specifically going to have to own trump as a choice. that’s where this cure has to start. so if that means this country’s going to implode due to it’s hate, then that’s an outcome actually best occurring sooner rather than later…

    1. Yes, the collapse of democracy in America, and loss of Super Power status, is eminent because Americans are being distracted from the global threat on its doorstep with an administration too focused on domestic affairs that will seem quite insignificant when tyranny takes over.

    2. @PJ Celeste too true, too true. but when it’s also realized that the world for the most part wishes america to be it’s leader, what you’re mentioning is also too painful as well…

  6. Racism will never go away, it’s too deeply embedded in America’s foundation.
    Adding to the Morgan Freeman statement: If you want racism to end, stop calling people “Black”, “white” or “African American”, etc. When I served overseas, people would ask me “Are you American?” Yet, only when I return to America, I receive additional titles to separate me from “Americans” aka “European Americans”. Racism IS America!

    1. “We must believe in a future where color of skin is no more significant than color of hair” – Sam Harris

    2. It’s dishonest to say “I’m color blind”. Morgan Freeman should not imply that we should be (or could be). I can see color of skin. I can see race. But, it does not bring up negative thoughts because of it.

    3. Oh so your solution is not to notice the difference. Your a genius. No one called anyone anything but cops still shoot Philando Castille for having a gun under his seat while watching Kyle Rittenhouse walk past with an AR-15. Not calling each other black, white, or purple is not going to make a difference in Derek Chauvin’s heart. Racists have been saying that their isn’t a problem for 400 years.

    4. @Jim Lawson – Well, according to the original post, everything in the USA is racist…plants, the trees, etc.

    5. No one asked you if you are African American while you were overseas because that is only a distinction the black community in America insisted upon, taking offense to “black” as a personal descriptor.

  7. Investing in crypto now should be in every wise individuals list, in some months time you’ll be ecstatic with the decision you made today.

    1. Believe me he’s the best when it comes to Cryptocurrency trading, your profit is assured.

  8. All the things that has happen when there were no cameras must be by the thousands .
